Open up your wireless configuration utility or Windows wireless config utility or Airport if you're using a MAC and tell it to connect to the SSID of your router.

Does your noeghbor have any computers directly hooked up to the router with a cable? Don't try to use an ethernet cable to the router and wireless at the same time.

Maybe buy him a sweet new router for 70 bucks that's not a pain in the ass.
It's a pc, not sure brand. I'll find out.

I believe his pc is hardwired in. His PS3 is wireless.

Right now, I'm hardwired into my room mates. It's the last thing he has here.

I unplug it every time I try to connect wirelessly, it connects but only locally.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality
